Youth: An Angel Message

This morning my angel message caught me by surprise when it tumbled out of an old journal.  Years ago I saved the YOUTH reading from the bottom of a tea box. 

I could feel my cells become more enlivened today by these words.

"Youth is not a time of life--it is a state of mind. It is not a matter of healthy cheeks and supple knees, it is a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination , a vigor of the emotions, it is a freshness of the deep springs of life.  Youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.  This often exists in a person of fifty more than in a person of twenty.  Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years, we grow old only by deserting our ideals."

The angels bring encouragement  to "step out of the box" of limitations and begin to live life anew with a fresh perspective on who you are and why you are here.  Smile to life today.

Enjoy your day with the Angels,

Love and joyful blessings,

Creative Choice? An Angel Message

I was surprised by a mental image of a Scrabble board that popped into my mind yesterday.  I knew it was an Angel message as that old game has been tucked away in the closet for years.  

For fun, I pulled it down and began creating uplifting spiritual words with the Angels. ANGELS was my first choice on the board  Digging into the box of letters, I could see how the alphabet is our creative building block and we are given the precious gift of an unlimited choice of words.  

Then early this morning in meditation, I was shown how the word ANGER can turn to ANGEL in one quick move. Just exchange the R for an L.   Love or Rage, we get to decide, and experience the outcome.

Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet, advised "...don't get mad and don't cuss a body out mentally or in voice.  This brings more poisons than may be created by even taking foods that aren't good."  (Reading 470-37)

Have a joyful day creating with your Angels.

Love and blessings,

Pink Ravel Roses: An Angel Message

A pink bouquet of lovely roses made it home with the groceries.  A healing gift from my husband to lift my spirits. They are one of a kind, he told.  A gift from the angels.
   The pink Ravel sticker on the wrapper made me wonder about the message.  I was feeling rather ravelled.

For fun, I looked up the definition of the word ravel:  it means to untangle or unravel something.   Things appear to be unraveling or raveling in our world just now with many changes on all levels. When called upon, Mother Mary, Undoer of Knots, with the assistance of her angels is working on our behalf, untying all the interlaced knots that are not serving our soul.

Keep Having Faith: An Angel Message

(Daniel in the Den of Lions, - web)

It takes great faith and courage to believe, especially when things appear to be a lost cause. and we've done our best and yet we find ourselves caught in a precarious position with no seeming way out.  That's what happened to Daniel in the Bible.   

He was one of three presidents under King Darius.  God had put his spirit in Daniel, and so the King found favor and set him over the realm.  Then the jealous presidents and princes tried to undermine Daniel, but  could find no fault with him.  It became necessary to create something regarding him and the law of his God.  So they persuaded King Darius to sign a decree that no one should ask a petition of any God or man, except for the King for 30 days or else be cast in the den of lions. 

Daniel knew about the law, but being faithful, he went to his house and with his window opened, he kneeled down three times a day to pray and give thanks to his God as was his custom. These men found Daniel praying and had him arrested. The good king was upset that he had passed such a decree because Daniel, his favorite, would now be prosecuted by his own hand.  King Darius had to cast him into the lions' den, but spoke to Daniel, "Thy God whom thou servest continually, he will deliver thee."

After a sleepless night at the palace, the King hurried to the lions' den early the next morning.  A triumphant  Daniel declared, "My  God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they may not hurt me..."   

The King had him taken out of the den and he was in no way harmed because he believed in God. 

Daniel's experience with an angel in the lion's den brings courage and faith to help us keep our eyes on God and not on the problem, no matter how catastrophic it may appear.  Prayer works miracles so don't lose faith.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,

Karma Store: An Angel Message

                              (The Karma Store on Laskin Rd in Va Beach)

This photo was taken in 2010 at Virginia Beach. The Karma Store is now a distant memory, replaced by high-rise office buildings at the oceanfront.  I remember the first time I saw the sign Karma Store. Notice the spotlight on the roof ready to point the way in the dark. Elliot and I had a good laugh, joking about taking our karma back for a refund.  It was funny at the time.

Karma is one of those charged words that instantly brings to mind the act of doing something wrong and now having to pay dearly for it.  Over the years, I've come to realize that karma is nothing more than what I send out returning to me.  So the lesson is to choose wisely.  My own actions or reactions determine my experiences.  For past mistakes and regrets, there is a gift of grace through Christ.  

Daily meditation and prayer help to build up our spiritual muscle and strengthen a quiet resolve to stay in peace and not have a knee jerk reaction. It takes practice like any discipline.  And the heavenly realm will bow down lower as we come up higher and open our hearts and minds to the truth of our being.   It's a choice to be a source of peace in this chaotic world.  By making an effort to stay connected to the higher plane with the angels and our Higher Self, we can change the world moment by moment.   

Enjoy your day with the Angels.  

Love and joyful blessings,
